lapsed A license Can't Post

Hi all,
I earned an A license 10 years ago and haven't
jumped since. What are the requirements to become
current? I've googled and forum searched with no
luck. Thanks.

How many jumps did you make before you stopped?

Whatever it is, 10 years is still a long time. Refer to the link provided in the 2nd post.

GlideAngle just beat me to the punch. I have just started skydiving again after 33 years. I'd recommend visiting a local DZ and talking to an S&TA. I had to take a first jump course, but have advanced rapidly through the student program.

Its great to be back. Good luck!

Wow, what a busy and helpful forum. I've emailed
afew area DZs for details as well.
I had less than 30 jumps at a very small defunct DZ
and never felt confident in most aspects.
I guess I wanted to avoid a complete retraining
course with the time and expense, but of course
safety must be first. Thanks again.

If you didn't feel confident then I would strongly suggest you plan on starting from square one. You will probably progress through the student progression more quickly.

With such a long layoff and not many jumps, I would bet that any dropzone is going to require you take the entire first jump course. Also, it is possible that you will be required to do most, if not all, of the student program/jumps.

There are no BSR's(basic safety requirement) pertaining to recurrency but the SIM outlines recommendations for recurrency. Because of this, it will vary from DZ to DZ what is required to become current.

Give the DZ's a call.
